A Simple Man

Video and reading by Divinity33372 on Open Salon and UTube





He said, "I am a simple man"
But I saw layers
Of complexity
Like the roots
Of a tall sturdy tree
Reaching deeper
Down into the earth
Joining with the souls
Of those who died
In  his war
Joining with the hearts
of those who mourned
Their loss
Joining with those he called family
Those who called him son
Those who called him husband
Those who called him father
Those who called him friend
